The Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF is a multifunction color laser printer designed for the home or small office. It can handle a multitude of tasks, and has fast speeds and good print quality, but for faster speeds, check out the magicolor 2430 toner printer. Lack of networking and faxing capability might be a problem for some buyers.
The Konica Minolta 1680MF can print, scan, and copy. It does not have built-in faxing capabilities. This is likely not going to be a large issue for its target buyers, who may not have much need for faxing. As the 1680MF is designed as a personal unit, it also does not include built-in networking. Small office users who are looking to share the Konica Minolta 1680MF across a network of users may wish to look elsewhere. It is possible to share the printer with the use of a print server or host computer, but network scanning is not supported, so not all of its features will be available to network users.
The 1680MF has a very compact design, despite its many features. It has a particularly small footprint, just 16 inches by 16.9 inches. It does require more space in the front for its input and output trays, but it will generally fit in tight office spaces.
Konica Minolta 1680MF toner cartridges have a capacity of 1,500 pages each. There is also a high-yield option for the Konica Minolta 1680MF toner as well, with capacities of 2,500 pages each. This is a much more economical option, as it lowers the cost per page of printing. Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF toner tends to be a little expensive, so high-volume users might want to look for a printer with a lower cost per page.
Print speed is impressive, at around 20 pages per minute for black, and 5 pages per minute for color prints. Print quality is excellent for text. Color prints are better than expected for the price.
Overall, the 1680MF has a lot of features to offer for the price. High cost per page and lack of networking support make it a poor choice for a multi-user environment. This can be remedied by getting Konica Minolta magicolor 1680MF toner cartridges in a third party compatible form, and reducing overall printing costs.
